If you've ever witnessed the organized brawl that is Aussie Rules Football, you'll know that they're bred from tougher stock down under. On Friday, a player from the Brisbane Premier League's Peninsula Power seemed to confuse the sport he was playing when he executed a brutal clothes line tackle on Brisbane Wolves striker Kado Aoci.
The incident took place while Brisbane Wolves were 2-0 down in a heated semi-final of the Canale Cup, which is Queensland's most coveted piece of soccer silverware. Wolves coach Sam Saif was flamin' angry about the incident, telling couriermail.com.au:
"Right in a critical moment Kado has been knocked out unconscious for about five seconds and looks as though he has broken his jaw from a tackle that should have no place in football."
Amazingly, the referee only issued a yellow card for the foul. Strewth, mate.
Brisbane fought back to level the score at 2-2, but were denied the opportunity to throw some celebratory shrimps on the barbie as the Power scored a winner in injury time.
This has been the Dirty Tackle of the Day: a chronicling of unfortunate events.
